Synopsis

Location: Studio

The second film of the Festival set around the liberation struggle; this was the first-time feature from the husband-and-wife team of Tareque and Catherine Masud.
Young Anu is subject to his father’s fundamental Islamic religious belief whilst his uncle is active in the political movement for reform and change. A young boy faces life when all around him is change.
‘It is quietly superb film-making, and Masud makes it look as easy as breathing….’ The Clay Bird has marvellous humour and flair, and compassion for children's sadness and their resilience in the face of life's trials. It is one of the films of the year.’ Peter Bradshaw
